Mini-quiches with leek and smoked ham

Singlemade: mini-quiches

At uni, I used to make quiches to finish off leftovers. I’d buy some ready-made puff pastry dough, threw all the leftovers on and ate quiche for three days straight. Yes, it’s good, but a full cake tin’s worth is just too much for one person. In other words: not single-proof!

Claudia’s savoury muffins inspired me to take things into a different direction. Several small quiches instead of a single big one. Perfect for the lunchbox and to store in the freezer. And to avoid hassle with dough in tiny baking tins, I wagered on crustless quiches. As it turns out, you don’t need the pastry dough to make a delicious quiche!

Mini-quiches with leek and smoked ham
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Grease the baking tin or set out the paper moulds* on a baking tray. Make sure you’re set up for 6 quiches.
  3. Break two eggs into the bowl and whisk them loose. Place the bowl in your kitchen scales and add the cheese and milk. Add 10 turns of the pepper mill and a generous pinch of salt. Use the whisk to mix everything until even.
  4. Clean the leek and cut into razor-thin slices. Roll up the ham cuts and cut them thin as well.
  5. Mix the leek and the ham into the egg mixture.
  6. Use a spoon to divide the batter over the tins/moulds, making sure that the leek and ham are evenly spread.
  7. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Then check to see if the batter has solidified before taking it out. They should be (dark) golden brown!
  8. Set to cool for about 5 minutes before digging in!
Recipe Notes

*If your paper moulds are rather thin, put two in one another for extra strength.

All the testers agreed: they’re yummy, but they stick in the paper moulds, so it’s best to use a baking tin! 😉

Christel went for a large quiche with puff pastry dough and scored big with her kids!

Stephanie and Caroline both confirm that the quiches smell delicious straight out of the oven!

Kim went all out. She added a big dollop of Philadelphia cream cheese, she replaced the ham with bacon bits and threw in a carrot for good measure. Kim’s tip: serve with a bean salad or a fresh green salad.
Next time, Kim’ll add broccoli and fried bell peppers, and some goat cheese. You can really take it in all directions! 😉
